Cher Lloyd’s ‘Swagger Jagger’ goes straight to Number One

Amy Winehouse's 'Back To Black' continues posthumous run at top of albums chart

Cher Lloyd‘s debut single ‘Swagger Jagger’ has gone straight to Number One tonight (August 7).

The opinion-dividing track knocked last week’s chart-toppers – and fellow X Factor losers – JLS‘She Makes Me Wanna’ down to Number Two after a one-week stint at the summit.

There were other singles chart new entries for Christina Perri – in at Number 17 with ‘Jar Of Hearts’ – and Benny Bessai, whose collaboration with Gary Go, ‘Cinema’, went in at Number 24.


Further down the chart, Eminem‘s ‘Space Bound’ debuted at Number 36, two places ahead of Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s ‘Otis’.

In the albums chart, Amy Winehouse clocked up a second posthumous week at Number One with her 2006 LP ‘Back To Black’. Her 2003 debut ‘Frank’ moved up two places to Number Three – its highest-ever chart placing.

There were two new entries in the chart, albeit in its lower reaches – Viva Brother‘s debut ‘Famous First Words’ was straight in at Number 34, while former X Factor contestant Rhydian went in at Number 39 with ‘Waves’.
